I don't have any horseradish and need to make a dipping sauce for steamed shrimp. Thanks

We like Cajun or spicy flavors.

If you have sour cream, creme fraiche or greek style yogurt, add the spices you like and that can sub for a dipping sauce

Old Bay seasoning is popular in my parts with Monita's suggestion above with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

Soy, sugar, sake, lemon juice/lime juice, mustard, lots of ginger, garlic, onion. If you use fresh onion, garlic, onion and ginger juice...whisk it all in a blender and strain it in cheese cloth after letting it sit a bit.

Doh! I now see the Cajun request. Do you have a bottle of Cajun Seasoning? (if not look up a recipe and wing it for a small amount). Then mix with mayo and or sour cream and dill pickle cubes. Adjust with lemon juice, salt, and cyan pepper to taste.

I ended up using sour cream, mayo, dash worsteshire, chili garlic sauce, ketchup, garlic, parsley and s&p. turned out brilliant!
